After an emotional series against the Astros, the Washington Nationals visit Yankee Stadium for the weekend.

Is there a more dangerous bat on the planet right now than Giancarlo Stanton? He’s sending baseballs into orbit frequently right now and appears to be healthy — which is scary for opposing pitchers.

Friday night’s game at Yankee Stadium will feature two pitchers looking to get on track this season. Patrick Corbin’s ERA is ugly to start the 2021 season and Washington expects more from him. Jameson Taillon will take the ball for the pinstripes in the first game of the series.
